Hi, I am new to this site and have not reached out for support until now. Not because some might think that I am in denial, but I am afraid to hear too much negativity and sadness. After a lumpectomy and node mapping, I was diagnosed with invasive ductal breast ca. I am 32 and have an 18 mos. old daughter and was not all that surprised. I have been finding lumps for quite some time now. It wasn't until I started Chemo. and began to feel ill that reality settled in. I am half way through chemo and will go on to have radiation treatments next. I feel as though the waiting game has begun. Wait to finish chemo, wait to finish radiation and wait to see if it recurs!!!!!!
